COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The king of the abbey beers. It is amber-gold and pours with a deep head and original aroma, delivering a complex, full bodied flavour. Pure enjoyment! Secondary fermentation in the bottle. (Temp: 8-10ºC)

HogTownHarry (6199) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - NOV 23, 2005
Bottle (330ml). Poured bubbly gold with an average foamy head. Aroma of spices (pepper & coriander), apple, lemon, some sweet malt and a fair amount of alcohol. Taste - spice, alcohol and even hop bitterness, a little light malt backing, but mostly sharply bitter; decent. Mouthfeel very lively, sharp and alcoholic. Solid triple - no St. Bernardus, but solid.

hippie4beer (162) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - NOV 21, 2005
Bottle. Pours a light hazy gold with a small white frothy head. Aroma of corriander and citrus. Flavor is very herb like with notes of corriander, orange zest and notes of alcohol. Full, carbonated, silky mouthfeel. Bottle said best before 11/16/02. Oops. (Not many of us around, must have sat on the shelf for a few years.) Still great regardless of thier reccomendations.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - NOV 12, 2005
Large creamy head, gold blond colour. Strong hop aroma, herby. Full taste, sweet alcoholic, metal-bitter finish that lasts long.

mjg74 (2726) - Salem, Oregon, USA - NOV 11, 2005
750ml. Bottle. Pours a hazy golden color. Sweet yeasty aroma with a hint of pear juice. Flavor up front is quite spicy with a bit of a yeast flavor. Some grain seems to be present as well. Rich in flavor with a full mouthfeel. Alcohol is slightly noticable. Tasty, well rounded brew.

Incredibly, another great Belgian tripel. I don’t understand why it’s typically $1 cheaper than the other, IMO it’s just as good.

Tejas (909) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 2, 2005
Lots of coriander and yeast in the nose. The same carries over into the flavor too. Big full bold flavors. To me, some Tripels can be a bit light in body; this one isn’t. A solid tripel.

cathcacr (642) - Oregon, USA - SEP 30, 2005
DEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE-lish! Well-done Tripels are fabulous. Pretty much everything good you’d expect in this style. Bottle says to pour the yeast in with the rest if you want a nutty flavor, and I do, and there is one. I’m surprised that Tripels aren’t everyone’s favorite style. This or St. Bernie’s is my favorite of this style.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2005
A Mes rate: Pretty run of the mill tripel. Slightly cloudy. Little sticky in the mouth. Lots of coriander and butterscotch and the slight lick of alcohol make for something that is ok, nothing better for me.

fordest (2017) - Santee/San Diego, California, USA - OCT 28, 2005
750 ml bottle. poured hazy yellow with a huge head. Lacing was fluffy and filled the glass. Aromas were citrus and very Tripel like. Flavors were fruity and definitley full-bodies. Finish was dry, and quite a bit of alcohol presence. Not too bad.

Hansen (7351) - Assentoft, DENMARK - OCT 16, 2005
Golden colour, medium head. Floral- sweet aroma. Flavor is too bitter, too much alcohol.
